Children being cared for at an Ipswich hospice will benefit from new specialist equipment thanks to a £5,000 donation.
Unit 17 nightclub, based in the town centre, made the presentation to East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) to be spent at The Treehouse.
The money will buy a new oxygen concentrator and replacement slings for the hoist system to enable patients to move around site, in St Augustine’s Garden.
The cash was collected as part of the Echo Trust charity, run by Unit 17 operator The Deltic Group.
Matt Leggett, general manager of the Cardinal Park venue, said: “We nominated EACH to benefit because of its amazing work with children and their families.”
